It's midsummer again in Boca Raton, and with that, we take a moment to acknowledge the incredible men we grew up admiring. From soldiers and sailors to businessmen, mentors, and shoulders to lean on, our fathers go by many things. Our fathers wear many hats, take on many roles, and set the tone for the future we are blessed to look towards ourselves. Most of all, we know them by "Dad," and on the weekend of June 18th, we celebrate their impact on our lives and the community at large. Here are our choices for the many Father's Day Events in Boca Raton this year.

Congratulations! You got the listing! Or to the inverse, you're showing a motivated buyer of means a property you think will be perfect for them. Regardless of the warmth of your lead or the natural fit you think this home presents its prospectors, it's important to gauge the temperature of the room and properly advise your client. In going over the basics, we provide a few do's and don'ts of showing a property that every Realtor should pay heed to. Read further and keep growing!
Do: Prepare/Stage The Property
This is a given if it's your listing. As much as you'd imagine empty spaces leaving more to the imagination, having furniture and houseplants in prominent spaces of the home gives the visitor an idea of what they could do. Even if the staged furniture doesn't feed into the aesthetic tastes of the home buyer, they will be able to imagine their own furniture and their own configuration, using the existing pieces to think aloud. Bonus points for taking advantage of a beautiful backyard, such as those offered in The Oaks at Boca.
For most, Memorial Day is another gracious Monday off, and while an important day to remember, is mostly a day to BBQ and hit the beach on a weekday. Yet, for those of us who served, love someone who has, or lost someone in the line of service, this day takes on a solemnness not felt by all. While we're not suggesting you give up on the fun and sun of this iconic American weekend, perhaps consider taking a moment to honor those who laid it all on the line to make it all happen. We're sure you have your tongs ready, charcoal stocked up, and weekend menu set, but are you aware of these ways, monuments, and spaces to honor and respect our veterans? Learn more about honoring our fallen veterans in the Boca Raton area, and have a beautiful weekend!

Visiting this museum will give greater insight into the...
After a lifetime of raising.... us, it's time to take one day out of our busy schedules to celebrate, honor, and pay our respects to the one who gave us life and set us on our course to success.

It's that time of year again! Some of us may still be recovering from St. Patrick's Day, but Cinco de Mayo is firmly on our calendar.

It's another (y)ear in Boca Raton and for many, a time of reflection as they approach the holiest day of their faith. Yet, for all of us, it's another opportunity to enjoy decadent brunches, pastel-flecked eggs, and springtime fun. Easter may be a religious holiday, but much like Christmas, or the once-paganistic Halloween, we're more than content with our interpretation of the thematic fun that Easter brings. As a harbinger of springtime and as part of a diverse community, Easter festivities are hardly exclusive to anyone. For the best of Easter Events in Boca Raton, read on and see below!

The Boca Raton Museum of Art is one of the preeminent fixtures among our annual slate of public events. For seven decades, the museum has served our community as the ultimate centrifuge of arts & culture, hosting clinics, exhibits, and its own art school. Combining a global reach with a local focus, the Boca Raton Museum of Art is a pillar of our creative force and our growth as an artistic community. Without the centuries of colonial-era artwork that preceded much of Florida's current landscape, much of "Floridian" art has been inspired by local flora and fauna and manifested in the 20th century through today.
Beginning with Addizon Mizner's development of what is now downtown Boca - home to magnificent condos like 200 East, Alina Residences, and more, Boca Raton has grown to become a cultural hotspot in one of the younger states on the Eastern Seaboard. The Boca Raton Museum Art Festival is a celebration of our artistic community and the many works that have graced these halls in years past. Without further ado, learn more about the 36th Annual Boca Raton Museum Art Festival, what's expected, and why you should check it out!
Where & When?
Real Estate is a career that requires knowledge, savvy, and superb communication skills. However, there are few traits of a successful Realtor more important than drive, motivation, and desire. The New Year is not the only time to make changes to bad habits and amplify good ones, but it's a better time than never. As we look ahead to the next year of our lives as people, not just as professionals, we list some of the New Years' Resolutions fit for anyone seeking just whatever it is that moves them.
Between the expectations of our daily lives and the eternal stimuli from our screens, it's easy to lose track of the moment. So many of us (your author, admittedly included) spend too much time lamenting the past and fearing the future, wasting precious moments and energy on things we cannot help or change. Gratitude for what we have today ensures our past regrets remain just that, in the past, and ensures we have confidence going forward that we can weather whatever storm rises tomorrow. It is often our presence in the moment that optimizes our future. Mindfulness & gratitude take many forms, be it meditation, journaling, or simply stopping to breathe on a rigorous day. Find out what works for you and live for today!
